legislation that would revise the penalty for simple drug possession under the state law, making drug possession laws that punish as a felony would now be punished as a misdemeanor. the new legislation, sb-1506, does not apply to anybody involved in selling or manufacturing drugs. the stated purpose of the bill is that it would help alleviate overcrowding in state prisons and county jails, and ease pressure on california's court system and result in millions of dollars in annual savings for both state and local governments. senator mark leno who couldn't join us today as been quoted as saying, quote, there's been no evidence to suggest long prison sentences deter or limit people from abusing drugs. in fact, time behind bars and felony records often have horrible, unintended consequences for people trying to overcome addiction because they are unlikely to receive drug treatment in prison and have few job prospects and educational opportunities when they leave. this legislation will help implement public safety realignment and protect our communities by reserving prison and jail space f

. all improvements subject to the laws and regulations pertaining to the city contracts. and the laws such as san francisco administrative code section 6.22 g do not apply to the event and activities associated with it. ~ but because the city has agreed to reimburse the event authority for all amounts expended on construction contracts, the parties have agreed to apply the provisions of section 6.22 g. there is no reimbursement. the event authority is not being reimbursed one cent for any construction contracts being undertaken. so, all i can say to this committee is the foundation stone upon which the workforce plan was prepared and upon which the event authority agreed to pay prevailing wage and all the other things have been removed. and yet we have still voluntarily agreed to do it. and, so, in the backdrop of that, i really do question the tone here. the tone of innuendo that would try to tell somebody they were not trying to do the right thing. >> so, did you not agree to prevailing wage? >> we agreed to prevailing wage on the basis that we would be reimbursed for construction
